Sparton Nocturne

The Nocturne covers the old long wave marine band but nothing is likely to be found there anymore. Then it continuously covers from 550 KHz to over 19MHz in 4 overlapping bands. An interesting feature is the Band Expander knob, second from the left. It turns a cam which moves the core of the Oscillator and I.F. coils. It's intent apparently was to allow the user more precise tuning to bring in weak signals.
